Sounds like you are running Xmac68k_OSFA server at 256 colors on the
internal video, or on a NuBus/PDS video without Paul Goyette's SLOTMAN
kernel or Taras Ivanenko/Colin Wood's video lkm, but I can't tell for
sure because you didn't tell us.
There are several ways you can display the "correct" colors with
I. On a NuBus or PDS video card, you need:
i) a special kernel with a special device driver developed by
Paul Goyette; one of the SLOTMAN kernels,
ii) a device driver initially developed by Taras Ivanenko and
later turned into a loadable kernel module by Colin Wood.
II. On the internal video, you have to:
i) set the color depth to 16 bits (thousands of colors) before
ii) set 256 gray mode before booting NetBSD if you cannot do
NOTES: When running on the NuBus/PDS video, I-i is preferred over
I-ii, I think. In case of II-ii, it will be running in gray scale
mode instead of color mode, but the "colors" will be displayed
I tried to explain all this in my README file but it has apparently
been more confusing than clear.
